    That is a great suggestion. They were always willing to do that for me when I purchased strap goods from them. I am sure they would do that for you!

    Unfortunately I think the quality of Beval's strapgoods -once really lovely, beautifully finished tack - has declined quite a lot in recent years. (Sadly this seems to be the case for many brands,...

    I would worry a lot more about matching whatever barn you end up showing with than I would about the initials/monograms that are on those items, actually. A lot of trainers are particular about...

    I have bought several saddles on Ebay and have sold several more. I've never had a problem but as Rugbug and Bogie note, it's important to know what you are looking for ahead of time. In other...

    If it's that old, it was likely made by Jimmy Wiebe (http://jimmyssaddlery.com/saddlery/about-jimmy.html) ... I believe he is the father of the Jim Wiebe who owns Bennett's.

    A quick search on Ebay revealed 9 County Stabilizers for sale under $2K. Doesn't seem like it would be too hard to get one if you know the specs of the one you like. Happy hunting!

    I really love my Jimmy's 20th Century and kept it even after I mostly quit hunters and switched to a different discipline. I also liked my Hadfields but the customer service was so so and the keepers...
